Patrick Lesec Chateauneuf Du Pape Marquis Tonneaux 2001

14% Imported By Wine Warehouse, CA

This was a really nice bottle of CNP. More structure and very savory than ripe fruit. Not overdone in any way. Slightly modern with a slight oak influence....very deft. Restrained, concentrated and complex. Smooth. Not going to get better but not fading either. 70% Grenache 30% Mouvedre. Says it is aged in used barriques - not sure why they call it tonneaux then. Great with leg of lamb.
Recommended.

Thanks
